Ph.D. Positions for Pursuing Interdisciplinary Research in Nanomaterials


Our group fosters interdisciplinary research including diverse topics of physics, chemistry and engineering of nanostructured materials. The goal of the lab is to discover and understand the physics of the novel properties of the materials in the nanometer scale, and find applications in photochemistry, bio-imaging and optoelectronic devices.

Students with background in physics, chemistry, chemical engineering, solid-state electronics, or materials science and engineering are encouraged to apply. If you are a highly motivated student who is interested in pursuing nanoscience and nanotechnology research in an interdisciplinary environment, please contact Prof. Liangfeng Sun or his group members for more information. Please do include a cover letter, and a detailed resume, along with your email.

The Bowling Green State University (BGSU) is a research-intensive university in USA, located in Bowling Green, Ohio. Its degree programs include the nation's first Ph.D. program in photochemical science . The city of Bowling Green is a vibrant college town known for its diverse community and its close proximity to Toledo and Detroit cities. Bowling Green provides an outstanding quality of life.

We have two immediate research-assistant position opening for the Ph.D. students in the photochemical sciences program (Fall, 2019). The research topic is focused on colloidal nanosheets and nanorods. Talk to Dr. Sun if you had interest.

Master degree students


There are a few M.S. positions open for the research related to nanomaterials, including nanomaterials synthesis, nanomaterials characterization and device fabrication. You are welcome to discuss with Prof. Sun or his group members for more information about the projects you are interested in. We have an immediate research-assistant position opening for the M.S. student (Fall, 2019) for research on quantum materials. Talk to Dr. Sun if you had interest.


Undergraduate students


Undergraduate students are welcome and encouraged to be involved in our research work. You can either talk to the group members or Prof. Sun for more information about the research opportunities.


Postdoctoral research associates and visiting scholars


We are searching for postdoctoral research associates and visiting scholars to work with us in the field of nanomaterials. If you have research experience in synthesis of nanomaterials, device physics, or laser spectrocopy, please contact Prof. Liangfeng Sun or his group members for more information.
